That's interesting about ranking a page. The biggest content farms do have the ability to rank standalone pages - or did, anyway, presumably because they can recruit article webs on lonely topic areas. Apparently that is fading, which means they'll change or die. I'm okay with change or death, as long as the little guy without the ability to build the store, so to speak, can still set up shop somewhere.
(I'm always pushing the flaky notion that we collectively need everyone - and I mean everyone, not just big corporations or brands, but everybody's grandma - to start making a living digitally as fast as possible, because I believe it's the switchover from old economic model (car-based) to new economic model (digital) that's the underlying reason for the worldwide economic downturn. )
Anyway, I do hear you and TheMadScientist about the comments and I appreciate both of your advice. I'll look back over them to see if there are any outliers and handle them. But truly, it'd be madness to dump one of the few, reasonable, non-argumentative, on-topic comment threads the web has going for it, that doesn't make anyone want to bang their head against a wall Charlie Brown style.
